It’s probably time for me to rewrite my post from a couple of years ago My Favorite Gardens Around the World because I keep finding new and amazing gardens! So many gardens, so little time. On my recent visit to the State of Maine, and on the recommendation of my friends, we made a rainy visit to the Coastal Maine Botanical Gardens. I am so glad we did.
The Coastal Maine Botanical Gardens are open from May through October. The summer months can be really busy so plan ahead and order your tickets online. Even in the rain in September there was a lot of beautiful blooms, greenery and water features to enjoy.
We went specifically to see the amazing Trolls by Danish artist Thomas Danbo. Danbo makes these beautiful works of art from recycled wood. Danbo’s works can be seen at other locations around the world. Learn more here.
Perhaps Danbo will be bringing Troll’s to a neighborhood near you.
Plan Your Visit
Depending on when you visit The Coastal Maine Botanical Garden you can check and see what’s in bloom. The gardens are designed for year around interest and also include many special events and exhibits as well as permanent sculptures.
A small cafe is available in the gardens, but be sure to bring water, a sun hat and good walking shoes. Check the calendar of events before you go.
Located in the small town of Boothbay Maine, the gardens are about a three hour drive from Boston.
I highly recommend a visit to the beautiful Coastal Maine Botanical Gardens.
